Bauer Custom Skate Program

Recommended Posts

Wondering what anybody knows about the Bauer custom skate program. I was going to get True Two-Pieces as my feet are are a full size different, but after hearing lots of other people's durability issues, I'm now looking into Custom 2x Pro's now. there isn't much info on Bauer's custom goalie skates but I'm just interested to hear what other have to say about it.

Honestly, it seems that there is so much info about players custom vs goalie skates and it's frustrating. We hear everything about True as well, and the disappointments. Not enough info on Bauer, or CCM which would be nice. 

Maybe the @TheGoalNet can share his experience at CCM and how the skate turnned out.

I have used it twice and also just resently picked up another pair of custom Bauers ( although not made for me but they still fit good). Both my customs where done though The Goalie Crease in Richmond Hill, On. and both where done by legend Roddy Rod before his passing. I have been told TGC Rance has taking over and does an amazing job fit people with it. Now I am not sure with the current system what options are out there now but when I did, there was along list of what you could get, one I always got was the black one60 cowlings. Honestly I would love to do it again, just because I enjoyed and the fit was so dam perfect. My 2 pairs for are size 10.25L 10.25R, one foot was a .25 bigger so we went both the same size. Width I got was 4e foot and heel width was wider then normal just can't remember off the top of my head. The outer boot wraps are size 12 because I wanted a better wrap of the foot. Toe box is also larger, I believe 12. The 1s cowlingless skates where a Canadian custom but I bought them off sideline swap, 11e with I think a size 12 boot wrap too

I don’t really understand the deal with Bauer custom goalie skates. My retailer In the US insists they can’t order them the same way as custom player skates(using the scanner thing)

Yeah I think they are around $1500 now, is what I heard. Honestly if I didn't want to get a mask done I would probably do it again. Both Bauer and CCM really do a nice fit and finish with there custom skates.

I went with CCM, we will see what happens.

I went away with painting the mask this time, and going with a vinyl wrap design, that will save at least $500, hopefully the finishing product will be nice.

A retailer can make you a full custom based off the foot scan. As mentioned below, I am not 100% sure if all retailers offer this. Are you located near any major hockey shops? What is your metro area?

Other than size, any other issues driving you toward custom?

The interesting thing is that my AS3s are stock! Will be interesting to go "back in time" and compare them. I have a Tacks foot, so I am not too worried

I'm working with Wack from Pure Goalie in Mass. From the sounds of it, you can order a custom foot scan, I'm thinking towards this route because I've just been scared off by the true's durability issues.

I think they should be well qualified to do this. I would def go the Bauer route if you're worried about durability.

The 2S Pros I got done custom right before or as the new program was coming out (late 2018, new goalie program was supposed to start along with players but not necessarily with scanning?) cost just under $1000. 

My LHS was able to contact Bauer and pull my specs from when Rod at TGC fit me for 1S skates when they first came out. So no idea if mine were grandfathered into some old pricing model or not.

I've had zero durability problems with the True 2-piece skates, and they fit like a glove and feel like a slipper. I did my scan for them at the GoalieMonkey in Dallas. I got them in early 2019, so I may have missed the earlier time when durability was a larger concern with them, or I may just not be hard on my skates. I'd definitely recommend them to people looking for a custom skate.

      I'm in the market for new skates and I'm interested in the True two-piece and Bauer 2xPro's. I've been leaning True as my left foot is about a full size bigger then my right and trying to get skates that fit and feel comfortable on both feet has always been an issue. That would probably be solved with True's, but I've heard lots of durability issues with them. I've seen a lot of conflicting thoughts on them. Next year I'm playing high level U15 and I'll be skating 6+ times a week when the season starts (hopefully) so they will take a beating. I've always worn Bauer skates so I'm a bit hesitant to change. I've never had any huge issues with Bauer skates besides some ankle pain and an awkward fit. The tech on the 2xPro's looks pretty sick and seems like a great skate I'm just thinking the custom boot from True is more up my alley. If I go with True, I was thinking I'd go with the Vertex holder as it would give me some familiarity to a Bauer skate.
      If anyone can tell me about their experience with True's or 2xPro's I'd highly appreciate it. Also if you had True's please touch on the durability and the holders.

      I'm looking to make the leap into custom gear. I'm currently in SLR 1s (32+2) with VE8 mitts (used to have VE8 pads as well, but really disliked them). Looking for input on moving into a new company; I've been looking at Bauer or Brians - particularly because custom options allow for a smaller palm on the mitts. I've read that while Vapor is more of a hybrid pad - it still kicks out some big rebounds (also - I wear a 2x pro c/a, and figure the same ecosystem ensures a better fit). I've tried the strapping on the Vapors and find it very comfortable. I've also heard a lot of good things about the O2 mitts and the max core. Seeking additional input before I throw down $3k on pads. Thanks in advance for all your help.
